Novum has provided their three layer, ETFE Air Filled Pillow System for the Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum. The architect envisioned a light and airy space surrounding the cocoon structure at the heart of this London landmark structure.
To create a contemporary enclosure, while meeting the client’s light transmission requirements, Novum proposed their three layer, ETFE Air Filled Pillow System with a reflective screen print on the top pillow layer. At each gable end, Novum engineered the interface to allow access for a cleaning gantry.
The museum remained open to the public during installation; a challenge Novum was able to overcome by using rope access methods in lieu of heavy industrial equipment.
